The YMCA says that its takeover of the Broken Hill Regional Aquatic centre management has been a success.

The organisation, which is the largest provider of swimming lessons in the country, took over the pool management on December 1.

Broken Hill City Council had previously run the facility, but outsourced the Aquatic Centre management as a cost saving measure.

The YMCA has unveiled a range of programs and activities, including learn to swim, aqua fitness classes and 'dive in' movie nights that it will introduce when the Aquatic Centre comes under YMCA management on December 1.

The announcement of the new learn to swim classes comes after the recent cancellation of learn to swim sessions run by the NSW Sport and Recreation Department, following a decision by City Council not to waive recently introduced lane hire fees.
